Downtown - Glee


The Experience: Glee throws us a song about getting out of the "problems that surround you" and finding fun, life and fresh air... Downtown.



Music Video:  

The meaning of Glee's Downtown is perking life back up. We all have "worries, all the noise and the hurry" and then we burn out. Sometimes it seems like curling up into a ball will escape the hassles. Sometimes. Not if the problem is "life's making you lonely." Then it's time to go find life, movies, stores that don't close. Go "find someone kind who'll help and understand."

Ask Yourself: What do you do to get back to happiness again?

LYRICS:
When you're alone
and life is making you lonely
You can always go - downtown
When you've got worries,
all the noise and the hurry
Seems to help, I know - downtown
Just listen to the music
of the traffic in the city
Linger on the sidewalk
where the neon signs are pretty
How can you lose?

The lights are much brighter there
You can forget all your troubles,
forget all your cares
So go downtown,
Things'll be great when you're
Downtown - no finer place, for sure
Downtown - everything's waiting for you

Downtown
Downtown

Don't hang around
And let your problems surround you
There are movie shows - downtown
Maybe you know some little places to go to
Where they never close - downtown
Just listen to the rhythm
Of a gentle bossa nova
You'll be dancing with him too 
Before the night is over
Happy again

The lights are much brighter there
You can forget all your troubles,
forget all your cares
So go downtown,
Where all the lights are bright
Downtown - waiting for you tonight
Downtown - you're gonna be all right now

Downtown
Downtown
Downtown
Downtown

And you may find somebody kind
To help and understand you
Someone who is just like you
And needs a gentle hand to
Guide them along

So maybe I'll see you there
We can forget all our troubles,
Forget all our cares
So go downtown,
Things'll be great when you're
Downtown - don't wait a minute for
Downtown - everything's waiting for you


Downtown, downtown, downtown, downtown
